All is well... my little op went well and I am feeling fit and in no pain... thanks for all the thoughtful comments and wishes.
Now onto a little tutorial. I made this folder for a set of cards... and thought I'd share how I did it. Note I can not claim this as my own idea... one of my friends had made it - this is just to show how it is done..
Scor-pal or other scoring tool
one piece of card stock 28 cm x 23 cm
narrow double side tape
crop-o-dile or similar hole punch
ribbon - 60cm in length
score card at 14 cm
Turn 90 degrees and score at 6 cm
Trim an inverted V in the small part
add narrow tape to both sides
fold up and stick tape down to form flaps
Fold in half on centre crease
Find centre and punch small holes at each side - size will depend on width of ribbon you use
thread ribbon through so it is over the inside portions ( acts as support for the cards/envelopes
also inside can be decorated ( as shown above)
Hope you can follow this okay... if not email me and I'll see if I can help.
Off to do some more card making.... I like being on recuperation when I feel so good!!!
take care and have a great weekend.
